Importance of Israel in the life of Syria

Round 3 statements (Nov. 2016 - July 2017):

    "It has long had conflict with Syria over the Golan Heights. They are very concerned. They want to bloody the nose of Iran, but are more concerned with the Islamic State. They seem to be working both sides.” (239312)

   "Golan, security concerns. Palestine/Israel conflict (a Syrian cause for fighting Israel). Neighbor, ally with influential actors who care more about Israel than Syria.” (235781)

   "Everything bad that happens in Syria serves Israel.” (230713)

   "The Assad regime has never been a direct threat. They have security concerns for who may follow him.” (238631)

Round 2 statements (Nov. 2016 - July 2017):

   “It's a border country taking a neutral position. They are a major ally of Assad.” (220291)

   “They made Assad and they are helping him to stay.” (221211)

    “In theory they are in a state of war with Syria. It borders Syria.” (223911)
